Wreckless Eric: Wreckless Eric

Andy Gill, NME, 11 March 1978

IT'S RATHER appropriate that you can buy a hideous dung coloured version of Wreckless Eric's first album. Like the person who reminds you that the Queen defecates, Eric's an obsessive debunker, constantly pricking holes in the sanitised skin of life and pointing out the imperfections underneath. A twentieth-century Kaspar Hausar, in some respects.
